Ian Poulter Auditioning New Putters for The Open

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

A few days back Ian Poulter announced on Twitter he was "sacking" his current Odyssey XG No. 7 putter for a new one to debut at the Open Championship. He then invited any and all putter manufactures to send him what they've got.

Well low and behold a few days later look what shows up.

From the looks of it TaylorMade and Odyssey really want to be in that bag.

So what do you guys think? Publicity stunt or just where the internet and social media is taking us?

I think he should've personally contacted different manufacturers rather than just saying "Hey give me whatever you have." Although I will admit that was a smart tactic.

He's testing a Radius putter too. And it looks like Cobra Puma is going to try their luck on the putter market!

I was wondering if they were going to dip their toe in. I know they made a couple prototype anser's for him last year to try out, but didn't seem to make it in play.

It's a different feel, but feels incredibly smooth(or at least every Damascus putter I've hit has, including their previous one). This is actually the second White Damascus line they've released. The first was a Japan only release.


In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade M2 (2017) w/ Project X T1100 HZRDUS Handcrafted 65x 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade M1 15* w/ ProjectX T1100 HZRDUS handcrafted 75x
3 Hybrid: Adams PRO 18* w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams PRO 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4-AW: TaylorMade P770 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Black Onyx S400

SW: 56* Scratch Tour Dept(CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Scratch Tour Department (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
XW: 64* Cally XForged Vintage w/ DG X100 8 iron tiger stepped
Putter: Nike Method Prototype 006 at 34"

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

Indeed.

 

I've got one of those on the way over. Hoping EMS doesn't destroy the package

Cant be worse than a box I got last week. It was in 3 pieces, and so was the shaft in it. Thanks UPS.

I have three damascus putters, they feel fantastic.Some friends of mine are the distributors in Canada for Guerin and they sent one over hooked up with a Fuji shaft with his specs for him to tryout, was hoping they got chosen but that is a very nice putter he is playing now.
